Drop it like it’s hot.
Zip into the Special Blend Men’s Diablo Insulated Jacket and scorch the slopes like you’ve made a deal with the devil. Special Blend gave the Diablo a waterproof shell and fully taped the seams to prevent water from extinguishing your ride. A flannel lining keeps you toasty in the gnar, and underarm vents dump excess heat when you pick up speed. The Diablo’s shell moves with you when you ride the trees, and an attached ninja style hood helps you fly under the radar.

i bought the grape got rad color which i think is discontinued now, and i love it. a quick disclaimer though; its way more purple than the picture makes it look. i still love it though. super warm jacket with a lot of dope pockets. the powder skirt isnt removable but its not that intrusive.
At 6' 165 do you think a large or medium...
At 6' 165 do you think a large or medium would fit better?
Go with the large. You are about my size and that is the size i wear. also for the price you can not go wrong.
I am very pleased with the quality of this jacket. I did have to return the medium to get a large. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs. The medium was tight across the back of the shoulders and a little confining around the hips. The large is perfect and allows the freedom of movement needed for boarding. I like the liner, though you'll still have to layer up on chilly days. Attached powder skirt is nice, and there are snaps to maybe attach to pants? Nice media pocket, mesh in the pit zips to keep snow out, and a roomy hood when I'm wearing a helmet. My only complaint is the elastic material around half of the cuff. I'll have to see if it soaks up the water on those damp powder days. Definitely recommend to others.
Hi I have the mens Burton Vent striped...
Hi I have the mens Burton Vent striped snowboard pant in purple, and was wondering whether or not the purple was the same shade as this jacket. Is there anyway to have 100% confirmation? I only want this jacket if it matches...
I would suggest you get the jacket and deal with the slight mismatch, there is no way you will be able to get an exact match unless you buy the matching color way from burton. You will be very happy about the quality and comfort you get with this jacket.
i love this jacket. i got grape get rad and it is a little brighter than it showes in the picture. it also has an awesome pattern on it but it is hard too see. i=the pattern is black but hardly noticable. it says insulated but the insulation is not that great. just to confirm IT HAS A POWDER SKIRT. it also has a yo-yo pass holder, whick is great... i would defonatly get the jacket if ur looking for a cheap jacket.
I got the denim one and went to Park City opening day last weekend. It does have a powder skirt, it is not removable either. But i for sure dig it. It does offer a bit of insulation, but nothing substantial. I just treat it like a shell, and I was just fine.
Colors-The Grape Get Rad is just that: Rad. I didn't get it though because it was pretty nuts. I wanted to wear this around civilians, so I ended up with the denim color. It's more like a dark grey, almost black. I really really am happy with it!
By the way, this was my first time snowboarding...I know I suck =)

Does anyone know how bright the purple is?
It is not a bright color at all, This purple is muted. Think of Welches Grape soda then you can get the right idea of what it looks like in person.

hey does this jacket have a powder skirt or no?
the tech specs say no. have you heard otherwise?
No I haven't. I only ask because, sometimes, the specs are a bit off. I was just checking. I am going to go to the factory on Friday, so I will find out for sure then.
Yes it has a powder skirt. Please note, Special Blend has changed their skirt attachment to pants starting in 2010.

is the denim more like a real denim bluish color or is more grey
Dark denim is what this jacket looks like in person. Not so much grey. Sick jacket for sure

hey im 110 lbs. and 5'3.5'' or 5'4'' what size jacket should i get? an xtra small?
go by these sizes my man. Extra Small 32"34" (8186 cm) and Small 34"36" (8691 cm). Measure your chest to see what size is best for you.
does the hood fit over a normal size...
does the hood fit over a normal size helmet?
It is not going to fit like it would with just a beanie but it will fit.
it's pretty good. it looked about that color, i didn't think it was all that bright, got the grape rad. it was a little bit darker purple. not very dark but it definitely goes better with black. Haven't actually tested it, snowboarding, it's not exactly insulated but not that it's not insulated. it's definitely not something i'd only wear if i was in colorado. if your in warmer temperatures, like upper 30 degree F. it may be ok. but anything lower i'd definitely wear some under armor.
if you want the color and pattern are go to this URL:

I would think a small, but here are our sizing to make sure you get the right fit. Small: 34"36" (8691 cm) Medium: 36"38" (9196cm) I am 6' even and I run Large because of the length of the sleeves. I hope this helps.

Is this true about the brightness of the Purple version of the Jacket? Or is the picture a good representation of the color?

Is the Large for this jacket similar to the Burton Large?
depends, burton has the different fits...this would be most similar to the "team" fit because special blend just fits huge and long in general
i ordered the grape get rad because it looked cool on here but when it came it was SUPER bright and had this lame drawing all over it. plus the insulation isnt that great idk it fit pretty nice though, slightly tailored.
